Filey v Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Seamer & Irton CC 1st XI on Sat 02 Jun 2012 at 2pm
Seamer & Irton Cricket Club Won 1 wicket

Match report Filey won the toss and chose to bat first and lost an early as Seamers attack bowled a tight line and kept the pressure on the Filey top order. Andy Burrell was his usual belligerent self and hit a solid 45 before falling to Dave Lawty top edging a short ball to Gary Lawton at square leg. Chris Clifford came on to bowl and bowled a very accurate spell taking 4 for 55 in 13 overs and this was only spoilt slighty when he went for 17 off his final over as Filey's tail waged when A Howard smashed an impressive 33 including 3 six's.Gregg Chadwick had an excellent day behind the stumps taking 5 catches in the innings. Seamer began their run chase and were always behind the rate as the filey opening bowlers N Robson and W Hunter bowled 4 maidens between them in the first 6 overs. Darrol Lewis looked in good touch in hitting a fluent 30 but his opening partner Joe Danby was uncharacteristicly out of form as he struggled to 11 runs in 18 overs. Seamer lost wickets at regular intervals and at 96 for 6 they looked dead and buried but the tail end had other ideas and Phil Metcalfe and Gary Lawton started the chase adding 18 and 17 respectively and then Dave Lawty came in and hit fluent 27 to follow on from his solid bowling display. With 10 overs remaining Seamer required 82 to win and had 3 wickets left and when Gary Lawton was out Adam (Kebab) Morris strode to the wicket. Seamer were staring defeat square in the face the captain had even took a bet with Tom Irwin that defeat was only a couple of balls away but Kebab had other ideas and began to flay the Filey Attack to all parts of the ground and suddenly with 3 overs remaining Seamer needed 29 to win and Kebab was on the charge. Filey contributed to their own downfall dropping the hard hitting fast bowler twice as he smashed 13 off the 41st over 11 off the 42nd and 15 off the 45 over to win the game for Seamer with a ball to spare.
